More heavy rain has fallen on an already soggy Colorado, flooding streets and waterways along the Front Range Friday.
The Associated Press reports that there's a flash flood watch in place for parts of southeastern Colorado until Friday evening after rain pelted the area.
The Gazette reports heavy rain flooded a road in the southeast Colorado Springs area Thursday, trapping Jasmine Caso and one other motorist.
Caso says through the hail and rain, she didn't realize how deep the water was until her car got stuck.Colorado Springs police and fire officials responded and blocked off the street. Caso waded to safety in water up to her waist.
Much of the Pikes Peak region is under a flash flood watch through 7 p.m. The state's southwest corner also is under a flash flood watch.
One of the areas most at risk is Douglas County, south of Denver. National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina says the area got between 2 and 4 inches of rain Thursday and more fell Friday morning.
The rain is expected to move east over the Plains later in the day but the high water in Plum Creek there and in the Poudre and South Platte rivers will remain.
